This is my second time coming face to face with pancreatic. Years ago we had a patient in Roswell who we consulted with (the we would be several of the doctors in practice with HealthSprout at the time). This is one that you take very serious, but as the nature of so many cancers, because of the limited expectation of medical treatment, it becomes widely acceptable that alternative treatment is wise.
So this might be the shocker for some of you who don’t do Facebook, or have not followed us lately. Loree’s husband Steve was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The diagnosis was upgraded from a Stage II-ish to a Stage IV. This means that it has spread through the body to other tissues/organs and has the ability to be spread throughout the lymphatic system and the blood stream.
The pancreas tends to be more significant of a diagnosis because this cancer usually does not show itself until it is later stage, and it also sits at the junction of many other organs that can increase the spread of these cancer cells. So it is feared in the medical world. And as much as it is feared in the medical world, it is one that we attack in the alternative world.
THE PANCREATIC VICTORS…
out there are happy in their victory. They are conventionally treated, they are alternatively treated, they are a mix, and they are also divinely healed in the grace extended from God. All of these types of people are out there telling their stories of healing. Which leads us to wonder, “What is so different from one to the next?”
When Loree told me that the doc told them that it had been growing for “at least several months”, I shook my head and wanted to cry. Seriously? The cancer that is known for not showing any signs until it is late stage. I knew right away that it had to be years of development. Read the literature man. So then question that comes into play when reviewing those who are victorious in their battle with this type of cancer is how long was it growing, how far had it spread.
But I think more important than that, is what is the level of function of their whole body. What has been done to prep the body for a fight. I feel good that Steve is well prepped because of his diet as of late. We often reference the atlas as it relates to the immune system, and the ability to fight. And in Steve’s last x-ray, his atlas and cervical curve were at the best they have ever been… prepped to fight.
So the juicing has begun, the nutrient battle is on. There will be traditional treatments as well, but it is all going to be a concentrated effort to kill off cancer cells, while trying to build up the body to preserve the function of his own cells. His immune cells (pray specifically please). Take a look at the story of this local victory and consider how it might happen all over again.
… My naturopathic clinician helped me cope with nausea and had me on vitamin D, multivitamins, green tea and fish oil because of their natural, cancer-fighting properties. Something else that helped me tremendously to reduce side effects was acupuncture, which CTCA also offered onsite. My acupuncturist Irina helped me deal with hot flashes/night sweats. Dr. Rosenberg, the chiropractor at the hospital, also realigned my spine. It was out of whack due to a sports injury. I also had massages with Gretchen. On the days when I’d have my massage and chiropractic adjustment, I felt so relaxed….
The story continues –
The first year of my treatment was really hard. In the second year, I felt as though my body regenerated itself. My energy level was great. Granted, it took me a couple of days to recoup after I received five days’ worth of chemo. And some months were better than others. But overall, I had pretty normal energy three weeks out of the month. I ate right and took the natural therapies my naturopathic clinician prescribed.
I did a ton of juicing. That’s how I got a lot of my fruits. I juiced apples, carrots, red grapes, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries and cantaloupe. It was fabulous! Once a day I did it. And when I was at the hospital, the culinary staff did it for me.
As I read through Chris’ story, I feel like the therapeutic efforts were not awesome, and that they potentially missed many possible avenues. But I also feel like it was enough for Chris. This is important because we are all at different levels of current healing.
Right now Steve and Loree are going to be swimming in decisions and expenses. I set up a GoFundMe account to help with this by gaining financial support for the family. I would ask you to consider giving, even just a few bucks, to help them make good on this fight. This fight to win for the glory of God.
Thanks so much for your support, and continued prayers. Be well and be blessed! – Dr. E
